Apartment living, 3 tips to boost community spirit

It’s easy to forget that the word apartment is based on the word apart, especially when it can seem like so much of daily apartment living is shared rather than separated!  But who’s to say these occasional overlapping in the lives of multi-family dwellers can’t be purely positive experiences?

Here are a few tips and ideas for increasing the camaraderie involved in apartment living , while at the same time maintaining and even boosting the residents’ all-important privacy

1. Use your intuition.

Pride yourself on being able to tell when might be a good time—or a not-so-good time—to engage your neighbor in conversation. Is it time to pick up the kids, or time to get to work? If your neighbor is laden with bags of recycling, or is walking hurriedly toward the car, chances are he or she will be distracted and not be able to fully enjoy that funny story you’ve been wanting to share.

Intuition can be a great tool in determining when your neighbor might want to chat—or when, rather, he or she might instead need to scat!

2.  Share some greenery.

If there is a common area in your apartment building that isn’t being fully utilized, you might want to invest in a large plant to brighten up the room.  If there’s a neighbor you’re especially close to, the two of you might decide to share the expense, and you could also check to see whether management might want to pitch in.

A beautiful plant would be a popular topic of conversation among those gardeners in the building, and even the folks without a green thumb will still find it pretty!  Pick an appropriate variety for the room’s light-level, and don’t forget to water, but not over-water, the new resident!

3. Start a “free table.”

Of course you’d want to check with management first, but many apartment buildings that offer a common room or area have had great success setting up a free table.  Residents can contribute any clean item in good, working condition for other residents to take if needed—and of course the takers contribute something of their own to the table, in turn.

With a free table, you and your neighbors can get rid of quality surplus items, help one another, and establish a wonderful sense of bonding and camaraderie!

To Pre-Lease or Not To Pre-Lease: Fall 2013 Housing in Boulder, CO

That is the question. For most CU Boulder students, pre-leasing seems to be the best, and sometimes only, option.

But consider this, budget-seekers and those prone to worry: Housing Helpers will always have rental properties available around Boulder, even in those wild swing months of June and July.

It is true that the early bird gets the worm (in this case, this means the most options “on the hill”), but the worm often comes with a higher price tag where pre-lease properties are concerned. If you can afford to wait, the reward may be more affordable.

This is largely due to the housing rush that occurs throughout the summer and culminates with landlords’ last-minute efforts to fill their properties with tenants before it sits vacant. At this point, the price of housing will drop.

Moreover, Housing Helpers is still getting August move-in properties in June, July, and yes, even the month of August itself. As a property listings company that operates year-round, we always have rental inventory in and around the Boulder area; the majority of which are not listed until 30 to 60 days before their available date. This means we will continue getting rental properties throughout the spring and summer that will suit your Fall 2013 housing needs!

Another reason to potentially hold off on the pre-leasing is if your roommate numbers may fluctuate. What if Dan does get accepted into the study abroad program and won’t be able to pay his portion of the rent? What if Kelly and Maggie have a disagreement and now refuse to share a living space? August is still many months away and life happens. Thus, waiting until the time is closer may actually give you an edge over those who rushed to sign the first lease they saw.

So if you are not yet sure of your roommates, your wallet is getting thin, and you won’t turn your hairs gray by waiting a bit- then enjoy your semester, the last few months of your current lease, and start looking with vigor after the stress of finals have settled- you might be  glad you did!

Boulder Off Campus Housing

Fall pre-leasing rentals in Boulder, welcome to the 2013 prelease season.

Dear parents, new and returning scholars, and all people leased into your current housing until the summer:

Welcome to Pre-Lease Season! This message comes as a heads-up, a forewarning, and a helpful note all in one to those who want to avoid the last minute rush for housing in August.

For us here at Housing Helpers, the pre-lease season is about to be in full swing- and we are ready to help you (or your son, daughter, and their five friends) find the best possible place to serve as a haven for the upcoming academic year.

A “pre-lease” or “pre-leasing”  means exactly as it sounds: to lease “pre” the move-in date. For example, we have many properties available now for a July or August move-in. As a property listings company, this is a once-a-year opportunity to get ahold of properties that are in demand for a date more than 6 months in the future!

A common misunderstanding is that you must be a student to be eligible for pre-lease housing options. Or perhaps a grosser misunderstanding is that no one other than students would want to look at pre-leases for surely they are typical student housing. Both of these notions are utterly untrue. With the array of homes, condos, and apartments already available for August, we can assure you that there are many gems to choose from for pre-lease housing. Additionally, not all pre-leases are geared towards “the student life”; on the contrary, many properties support a young professional or family’s needs.

Many people have summer-to-summer lease terms and will be joining in the rush for housing when August rolls around. To beat the crowds, Housing Helpers advises anyone needing a new rental in the fall to start the search now with our pre-lease options.

We have a wide range of homes perfect for sharing, condos with kitchens perfect for cooking, and apartments perfect for socializing. You can stay updated on our properties via our website, Twitter or Facebook page, or on Google+. We want to keep you in the know so that we can help you find your best possible housing option!

The most effective way to see your options and set up viewings is to come by our office and speak with one of our amazing rental specialists. They will be able to consider all of your search criteria, even down to the details, and show you what properties best suit your preferences.

And a note to those who are looking and not finding exactly what you seek: Don’t fret! This is still the early stages of pre-leasing and many properties will not open pre-leases until later in the spring or even early summer. Keep your chin up, your eyes open, and keep in touch with us here at Housing Helpers so we can assist you in the search.

While we are still building our database of pre-lease housing, we are adding more options with each passing day. We already have a good base of properties to peruse, and expect many more by mid-February, so come by and see us soon!
